Box Office Weekend: The Hitman's Bodyguard Bumps Off Annabelle

The film follows one of the world's top bodyguards (Reynolds) as he is forced to protect his enemy, a notorious hitman (Jackson).

Jackson-Ryan Reynolds action comedy The Hitman's Bodyguard is the No. 1 movie in North America this weekend, earning $21.6 million in receipts, BoxOfficeMojo.com announced Sunday. "Kidnap" ($5.2 million), "The Glass Castle" (opening with $4.9 million) and "Atomic Blonde" ($4.6 million). It drew its fair share of females, or 48 percent. The animated The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature managed to scrape together $5.1 in its second-week of release bringing its two-week total to an unimpressive $17.7 million as it more than likely begins the end of its time in the top ten.

Third place went to another new attraction, the comedic heist flick, Logan Lucky, featuring Channing Tatum and Daniel Craig.

Indie distributor Bleecker Street distributed the pic on behalf of Soderbergh's Fingerprint Releasing.

Among holdovers, Warner Bros./New Line's Annabelle: Creation came in a strong No. 2 with $15.5 million in its second weekend for a domestic total of $64 million.


"Lucky Logan" appears to be a failed experiment for Soderbergh, the Oscar-winning director of 2001's "Traffic", who tried to launch the film by breaking Hollywood norms.

"Dunkirk" made $6.7 million for fourth place. And in the third big win of the weekend for the studio, Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman cleared the $800 million mark at the globally box office, including $404 million domestically.

In other words, R.I.P. 2017 Summer Movie Season.

The Weinstein Co.'s Wind River moved into the Top 10 as it expanded into a total of 694 locations, grossing $3-M for a location average of $4,359 and an early domestic total of $4.1-M.
